    O'Connor Urged to reconsider


    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Four senators -- two Democrats and two Republicans -- sent a letter Thursday to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor asking that she reconsider her decision to retire.

    In a copy of the letter obtained by CNN, Sens. Barbara Boxer, D-California, Mary Landrieu, D-Louisiana, Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, urged the 75-year-old jurist to return to the court as the chief justice of the United States to avoid what could be a messy confirmation fight over her successor.

    I don't want anybody on the Court who doesn't want to be there. O'Connor has done enough for this country -- if she feels it is time to retire, I think it's highly inappropriate to try to lure her back.

    I don't like AG the AG on the Court for the same reason -- I don't think he wants the job.




    I've got so many lawyers lined up to see me, you'd think I had tobacco leaking out of my breast implants.
